10 icons of Oswin Oswald from "Asylum of the Daleks" with a few variations for a total of 15.

No teasers because I don't want to spoil people. But you should click the cut anyway.

Today I have 26 icons from Downton Abbey 2x03 and 2x04. Again there's a lot of Mary, but also an icon or two each of Violet, Cora, Edith, Lavinia, Anna, Sybil and Matthew.

I finally got around to opening a shop in diagon_elite because YAY MORE POINTS FOR RAVENCLAW, heh. But um yes. This post is going to be my catalogue for sigtags that people can come to and order things after they've been posted at diagon_elite. Non-H_E people can just scroll on by. Or you can look at my sigtags and feed my ego by telling me they're pretty.

There is a Getting to Know You meme going on over at hogwarts_elite! You should go check it out if you've been thinking about applying. We are a nice bunch of people! Also, if you do end up applying, tell them that I sent you and include this image in the application so that I can earn points for my house! And you should definitely think about applying because it is a LOT of fun.

But even if you're not thinking about applying and you just are bored today and feel like talking about random crap, you should go participate in the meme anyway.

ALSO, MORE ADVENTURES IN PHOTOSHOP. I made the following graphic for janetmaca a tumblr meme where I post my six favorite caps from an episode. This is for "The Satan Pit". Later I might do another post with before/after pics of each cap and my thought process behind choosing the specific caps that I did.

I am finally getting around to ~revealing~ my top 5 episodes of Doctor Who. It's probably pretty obvious to those who know me, but let's pretend this is suspenseful. drumroll, pleaseCollapse )

My top five episodes were really easy to choose, but numbers 6-10 were a LOT harder, so here's a list of some episodes that almost made the final cut.

Honorable mentions: School Reunion. I REALLY enjoy this episode and I cannot understand people who use this episode to hate on Rose. She was not the only one acting petty and immature in this episode, and I think her attitude in this episode makes a lot of sense given that the Doctor didn't talk about his past companions at all. But the reason I love this episode is because it's so much fun to see Sarah Jane again, Mickey is used to good effect, and I DON'T EVEN CARE I LOVE K-9. I thought his relationship with Four back in Classic Who was a lot of fun, so I like that he got to make an appearance on New Who. Plus, the villain is Giles! In this episode the plot is only so-so, but the character stuff is so strong, I don't really mind.

New Earth. Mostly I love this episode because it gave David and Billie a chance to show off their comedic acting chops which isn't something either of them really got to do much of during their tenure on Doctor Who. Also? CAT NUNS!

The Shakespeare Code. Yesss this episode is so much fun. Martha is a Harry Potter fan! She uses "EXPELLIARMUS" TO SAVE THE DAY. How awesome is that? I'm also a big Shakespeare fan, so seeing this fictional version of him is a lot of fun as are all the references to his works. And the cherry on top of all this is Ten's Rose!angst. Love it.

and now for #6-10Collapse )

Sometime in the next week, I shall post my list of the 10 Best Episodes of Doctor Who since focusing on the worst is just a lot of negativity, but for now here are the Worst Episodes of Doctor Who!

And the winner is...Collapse )

Honorable mentions: "The Next Doctor". I might be an RTD stan, but he is not without flaws, and imo this is the worst of his episodes. The Cyber King stuff is ridiculous as is the idea that a giant robot stomping through London would just be forgotten by history. But there is enough flashes of good stuff in the episode to barely save it from making the list. Rosita is lovely; the Doctor making the screw driver noises is funny; the speech about the all of the Doctor's companions leaving him; and the bit about how Miss Hartigan feels like the men in her society look down on her.

Also, "Aliens of London"/"World War Three". I LOVE Mickey and Jackie in this two parter, and I love Rose in it. But the plot itself does nothing for me and then the farting Slitheens are just a bit too silly for me. So yeah, not a fan of these episodes. But now for the Top 10!

drumroll please...Collapse )

Tune in tomorrow to see who lucky numbers 5 through 1 are. Which episode will get the honor of being the Worst Episode of Doctor Who? I know, the suspense is killing you, I'm sure.

So, I ended up getting into a really great discussion with therealycats about RTD's Women in Doctor Who vs Moffat's Women in Doctor Who over in this post and while replying to her comments, I realized that I was basically writing the meta that I'd been toying around with writing, so I edited my comments together to create this post. If you want to see my thoughts in context of my responses to her and to see the discussion that followed, I highly suggest heading over there and reading the comments. But I do think that this meta stands alone. ALSO, I am going to leave this unlocked (for once) in case anybody feels like linking to this and so that people outside of my nice little flist bubble can comment and respond. I should warn you guys that I basically wrote all of this out over the space of a couple of hours so perhaps it isn't as perfect as I would like, but I think it still does a fairly good job of examining these characters in terms of their stories and what that says about them as characters.

spoilers through The Wedding of River Song are behind the cutCollapse )

For those of you concerned about how spoilery these metas are: today's Catelyn meta contains spoilers up through A Feast for Crows, the Cordelia meta is specifically spoilery for episode 3x06 "Billy" of Angel but generally for her whole are, and the Rose meta is spoilery through 2x01 "New Earth".

Catelyn StarkCollapse )

It is past midnight and thus officially September 9th which means it is the first day of the We Love the Women That Fandom Hates project. For those of you who have only watched Game of Thrones and not read A Song of Ice and Fire, the Catelyn meta today does not refer to events that happen after the first book. However, it does refer to events that take place before the show begins, but that weren't really expanded upon in the show and probably will never be. Anyway, I hope you enjoy my tl;dr thoughts and can appreciate these wonderful women!

(warning: there are a ton of pictures and I got super long winded because these are two of my favorite episodes ever.)

3x08 “Human Nature”
Grade: A+



He's like fire and ice and rage. He's like the night, and the storm in the heart of the sun. He's ancient and forever... He burns at the center of time and he can see the turn of the universe... And... he's wonderful.


The Doctor is Being HumanCollapse )


3x09 “The Family of Blood”

(Sorry for taking so long working on these. I've been having issues with my computer, and I'm getting ready to graduate so I've been busy.)

3x06 “The Lazarus Experiment”

This is the Doctor's hair. It is pretty much the best part of this episode. So enjoy it.
